Kimat RGB LED

The RGB LED module is small compact module that integrates an RGB LED with the necessary resistors and breadboard/Arduino friendly pin headers. The diffused RGB LED is able to display multiple colors using simple digital output pins. PWM signals allow intensity control of each color component and thereby producing even more colors. The RGB LED module is part of Layad Circuits’ Kimat series of rapid prototyping products.

FEATURES
 8mm RGB LED with integrated resistors
 Compatible with 3.3V or 5V controllers
 Compact form factor, board dimensions:
20x23mm
 Standard 2.54mm pitch headers. Breadboard
friendly.
 Comes in either Common Anode or Commode
Anode variant.

PIN FUNCTIONS

Pin LabelFunction/Operation/Remarks
CA/CCCommon pin. For CA variant, this is to be
connect to Vcc. For CC variant, connect this
to ground
R,G,BPins for the red, blue and green LEDs.


APPLICATION NOTES
Usage of the module is straight forward. Connect each
color pin to a digital pin on the microcontroller. For a CA
board, connect the CA/CC pin to 5V. For CC variants,
connect this pin to GND. Turn each color on and off a
high or a low respectively. Generating PWM signals on
each color pin produces more colors.
